The day after the last birthday I'm ever going to have, that is!
Yep, I'm stopping at 59! I refuse to be 60. So I'm just going to celebrate 59 from here on out!
I had such fun. Jane, her sweet DH and Skippy all came over and we had a feast. Grilled two huge beef tenderloins, some great chicken and apple sausage, and also Italian chicken sausage. A ton of other fixings, a good bottle of vino, and lots of laughter. The pups played until they were just totally pooped.
And birthday cake! No gourmet cakes for us! Jane and I have this thing about white cake with buttercream icing from the market. We call it wedding cake! Her DH just rolls his eyes! Anyway, the more icing, the better. We figure only on birthdays can we seek sugar highs like this! It was so delish that I had a piece for breakfast! Ssshhh....
The most wonderful gifts made their way to my house - DVDs, books, a gorgeous stitchery kit, dishtowels, beautiful soft butter scotch colored pearls, some textile bobbins.
And these gorgeous Bunny Hill pink roses from my boss and his wife! Sorry about the bad picture, but my camera died before I could get a good shot. There are twigs wound around down in the vase. The smell is heavenly!
Gosh, everyone knows exactly what I like. But the absolute best was all the phone calls and emails with birthday wishes. Okay, so I cried a couple of times. I'm really such a softy!
Thank you to everyone for helping me celebrate in style the last birthday ever!
